2392c227f02c80139e3580aae9eb8726 - Simona Halep wins first match under Belgian coach: “I admired David Goffin always”

Simona Halep (WTA-3) on Wednesday in the second round of the WTA-tournament in the Qatari Doha (hard court/916.131 dollar) with 6-2 and 6-3 and won the Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko (WTA-24). For the Romanian, who was free in the first round, it was the first match under Thierry Van Cleemput, until recently the coach of David Goffin.

“I met him for the first time in Australia”, wrote the 27-year-old ex-number one in the world about her new Belgian coach on its social media channels. “I spoke to there just once. In the past we said to each other, only goeiendag’ or ‘how’s it going?’. I admired David Goffin always, because I like his style of play and he always gives on the court.” And one thing led to another. “It is a new collaboration. I can not say much about that, because this is still just the beginning. We’ll see how it goes.”

In the quarterfinals will meet the first seed Halep German Julia Görges (WTA 16). .
